Mouth guards are often used to protect your child’s teeth from injury due to teeth grinding and during sports. The team at Sterling Dental believes the use of mouthguards is extremely important because dental injuries are the most common type of oroficial injury sustained during participation in sports, according to the National Youth Sports Foundation for Safety.
An athlete is 60 times more likely to endure damage to the teeth when not wearing a mouth guard. It is estimated that mouth guards professionally designed by dentists prevent approximately 200,000 injuries such as concussions, dental and mandibular injuries each year in high school and college football. If your son or daughter is involved in a contact sport such as football, soccer, or baseball, give the doctors at Sterling Dental a call today and take one of the easiest steps to protect their teeth.
Teeth grinding can wear teeth down over time. It is most often caused by stress & sleeping habits. In order to reduce/prevent harming tooth structure & pain in the joints, here at Sterling Dental we offer our patients to wear an occlusal guard at night.
